About

Game Stamps are a map-making tool for role-playing games, which can be used right at the table as you play.

The Trailblazer stamps depict iconic terrain such as mountains, forests, or seas.

Whether you're preparing for a campaign or mapping the adventure as it unfolds, the stamps let you create attractive paper and ink maps in a fraction of the time it would take to draw them.

All of the artwork is compatible with 1" hexes and grids, making the stamps ideal for open-world games.

Stamp each hex as the players explore it, or pass the stamps around the table and create a shared world. No matter how many people contribute to it or how many sessions it takes to explore it, the map will be detailed and consistent.

Game Stamps are made of natural gum rubber, deeply etched to produce a high quality image. The rubber is precisely trimmed to avoid artifacts, and cushioned with thick foam to distribute pressure evenly, improving the quality of the impression. The hardwood mounts have an hourglass profile, making them easy to grip.

Each set comes in a cushioned chipboard box and includes an archival-quality ink pad.

A wonderful addition to the toolkit of any game group with a penchant for exploration. Whether you're creating a world ahead of time or improvising a hexcrawl on the spot, Brendan Day's Game Stamps will help you create a handcrafted map with speed and clarity. ~ Jason Lutes, author of The Perilous Wilds and Berlin.

Game Stamps are a great idea executed well. They're a welcome addition to my gaming library. I can't wait to see more! ~ Tony Dowler, author of How to Host a Dungeon.

Whether we use high quality pens and papers, or just scribble on the nearest scrap of paper, map making is one of the many hobbies within a hobby, that are part of being a gamer. When it comes to maps for fantasy games, there is an artistic quality to homemade one of a kind maps, that cannot be equaled. Game Stamps really do have that handmade look and feel. ~ Griffith Morgan, Co-Director of Secrets of Blackmoor: The True History of Dungeons and Dragons.

The Trailblazer stamps depict the following terrain:

  • Mountains
  • Hills
  • Grassland
  • Swamp
  • Forest (Deciduous)
  • Forest (Conifer) 
  • Sea
  • Desert
  • Tower
  • Village
  • Castle or Walled City
  • Megalith or Dungeon Entrance 

If you back at the Wanderer or Explorer level, you will receive a starter set containing 6 or 9 stamps.

The Wanderer level lets you choose either the Deciduous or Conifer forest, whereas the Explorer level includes both of the forest designs. 

If you back at the Adventurer, Wayfinder, or Cartographer level, you will receive all of the designs.

The Wayfinder and Cartographer levels include 3 additional stamps, which depict individual trees.

  • 1/2" Tree (Deciduous)
  • 1/2" Tree (Conifer)
  • 1/2" Tree (Leafless)

You can use these smaller stamps to create mixed terrain such as forested hills, or to add variety to large sections of woodland.

All sets include a jet black archival-quality ink pad, but if you back at the Cartographer level, you will receive three additional ink pads in colors of your choice. I recommend Cobalt Blue and Vermillion Red, but other colors are available.

Backed at the $62 level. I'll absolutely use the heck out of these.

These are pretty unique.  I've seen a lot of digital map making tools, but nothing quite so simple and low tech.

Right! I draw my own maps up in the journal I use for running my homebrew game; these stamps will absolutely cut down on the time it takes me, while giving me some creative flexibility. 

 

If I want to denote really dense forest, I could use the forest stamp overlapping on certain regions, etc. I wish I didn't have to wait until October (yes, I know it'll delay :lol:)

Well wayfarer was just too tempting, and I liked the stretch goal stamps, so I pulled the trigger on the $48 dollar pledge (I can always get more stamp ink pads later hehe), added $3 for the extra stamp and added shipping. I don't think $56.00 is so bad for a nice mapping stamp set.

Oh man, I would love to buy that for the high school D&D club, but alas, I can't afford it.

Welp, I guess that settles that.

 

All the rewards are spoken for...unless someone drops.

Yeah, he's frozen existing pledges too so that backers can't increase their pledges to add more stamps. The KS has done amazing and he wants to be able to fulfill all the rewards on time since he's doing the assembly himself!! Major respect from me for his conservative approach.

Completely understandable.  A little frustrating, this is all about me, after all.  

 

But I've gone ahead and signed up for updates.  We'll see whether or not my funds and other timing works out.  I hope it will.

      A bit late, as there's only 21Hours left at this time, but...
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lumir-k-the-one-and-only-cooking-oil-led-lamp/x/10803452#/
       
      I'm at the 'Get 1 Give 1' which means I'm getting one of these weird lamps, and a family without electricity in Cambodia also gets one. 
       
      -----------
       
      Overview Lumir K is a cooking oil powered LED lamp that converts the thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity. ▶Make an Impact- Bring the light to the people living without electricity. ▶1 Lumir K = 100X candlelight ▶Easy to Use-Just placing the lamp over the lit wick will turn the LED light on. ▶Accessible-Olive or canola oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. ▶Instant light-No need of charging or battery ▶Efficient-Consumes the only 5ml of oil for 1 hour of light ▶10-year life span
       
      Small heat energy turns
      the 100 times brighter LED light.

      Less Consumption, Less Emission
       
       

       

      Lumir K converts the small thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity and it turns on the bright LEDs. This amazing lantern will light up where you want and it make an impact on the world where it is needed.
       
       

       
       

       
      From now,
      Cooking oil turns to the power source of your lamp.

       
      Lumir K uses cooking oil to generate electricity.
      Cooking oil is one of the cheapest and familiar ingredients as it is easily found from grocery stores in the city to tiny kiosk shops in a remote area.
      Olive, canola and sunflower oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. Without any batteries or external power supply, only with tiny flame which is as big as candle, Lumir K gives you an instant and 100 times brighter light.
       

       

       
      Lumir K is an easy, accessible and sustainable solution for those who need a light.
      With a goal to light up the world, team Lumir had a successful campaign with our first product, candle powered LED lamp.
      We promised to keep developing solutions for families in the off-grid area and finally came back with Lumir K by improving efficiency and changing fuel as cooking oil.
      Lumir K achieved CE and its core technology is patented. We are happy to share this achievement with you, and we need your support to take one step further.
      Lumir K will brighten up anywhere light needs to touch.
       


      Lumir has been resolving the light shortages and delivering the beauty of light.
      Our journey started from a small but momentous experience during the trip to India, learning that there are so many places around the world suffering from unreliable or no electricity supply.
      Among 1.2 billion who do not have access to electricity, most of them rely on candles or kerosene lamps which is dark, harmful for health and the environment. Using kerosene lamps indoors has the same effect as smoking 40 cigarettes and the cost for fuel takes up even 30% of the household's income.
       
      Instead of unreliable supply,
      Isn't it be possible to maximize the light from a candle or a kerosene lamp?
       
      That was the question that led us to invent Lumir K as an effective solution for the light shortage issue.
      In the case of kerosene lamps, only 10% of the energy from the fuel is used for illuminating because the flame itself is the direct light, and the rest, 90% of the energy is just scattered in the air as a heat. 
      However, Lumir K harnesses the wasted 90% of the heat energy to turn on the LEDs, so it is pretty economical as it provides a brighter light only with a small flame.
       
      LUMIR K can be used anytime and anywhere while solar lamps has a big weather constraints in many areas like Indonesia where the average rainy days are more than 160 days. 
       
      After our first crowdfunding campaign, we became a partner of KOICA, Korean International Cooperation Agency, and Lumir K was piloted in Indonesia.
      Lumir K provides 4.1 times brighter light than kerosene lamps, while its economic effect was also achieved with 80% lower fuel consumption compared to kerosene lamps. It also reduces carbon emissions by about 90%.

      Didn't see a post on this one and it is in the final 24 hours. It is from Mythic Games, the originators of Mythic Battles series. This one is a bit less serious and more along the lines of Arcadia Quest/MOBA comic-fantasy theme.
       
      It is a skirmish game for 2 or 4 players. Miniatures are on 45mm bases and fall in the 32-45mm range. It appears that the bases are pre-sculpted. If MB:P is any indicator, the quality of the miniatures should be pretty solid as well.

      Dwarven Forge is doing a smaller kickstarter in June.  It's a pseudo sequel to their Caverns Deep line (which was their 6th kickstarter, aka KS6), KS6.66 - Hellscape.  This is different than their 7th Kickstarter - Wildlands which will be outdoor themed (trees and such) in Jan 2020.
       
      Many of you have been asking for smaller Kickstarters that are more digestible. So we're going to try it! We are going to launch a small, two-week KS with a limited scope. Best of all, it's happening very soon -- KS6.66 - Hellscape will launch in late June 2019! As the name implies, the lava-based project will focus on the fiery wasteland the fiends of the Nine Hells inhabit. The collection will consist of a small number of new sculpts as well as some repaints of some Caverns Deep pieces.
       

       

       
      EDIT:  It start on June 16th (Father's Day in the US)

      About
       [...] In the tragic accident of 2006, the world lost the renowned Professor De Carli, but we did not lose his spiritual heritage. While he gained his fame for being the first to theorise the so-called ‘Scale of happiness’, in the final years of his life, the holistic researcher utterly devoted his body and soul to the study of an equally mysterious phenomenon: ‘The swamp of the second-born'. It is widely known, at least in the creative sphere, that successfully duplicating a piece of work is a very difficult undertaking. Many promising artists, even those who experienced outstanding success with their first piece of work, have found themselves mired with Artax in this deadly swamp. I know, I know, that’s a low blow. However, or so the never-too-late Prof. De Carli expressed in front of the three hundred thousand students of the University of Turin during his celebrated lectio magistralis of 2004, "No road will be inaccessible to those who travel it animated by the fire of passion. No road except Corso Grosseto that is."
      Welcome to this new, crazy campaign by Durgin Paint Forge, mighty backers! We have worked hard over the past years to create a new range of miniatures capable of making your little heart race at a million beats a minute. At long last, here we are, eager to throw ourselves into this new adventure like a lemming on the edge of a cliff! With ‘The Second Government of Inneath’, we want to repeat the wonderful experience of two years ago and, if possible, raise the bar a few notches. Just as with ‘The Iron Crows’, our goal has been to make you fall in love with us and our creations, "The Second Government of Inneath" was born to remind you that, despite the passing of years, in our eyes, you are still as beautiful as the day we met.
      We have a single purpose: to create miniatures that are worthy of great heights. Or, at least metaphorically; in as much as 32mm miniatures can be. If you took part in our previous Kickstarter (the blessing of Grundur be upon you!), you already have proof of how uncompromising we are when it comes to the quality of our products. On the other hand, if this is your first experience with us then you are even luckier! Now we have two more years of creative and technical experience that give us a firm belief that this Kickstarter will be even better than the last.
       PLAY 3d prints! NDT: we strongly believe that humans have different heights. Or at least, this is what I learned when I met a Latvian guy and I seemed like his backpack, comparing our heights. For this reason, our human characters represent individuals with different heights and their miniatures reflect this concept, going approximately from 34 to 41mm size.
      Have I failed to dismiss your doubts? Feel free to write to us at info@durginpaintforge.com if you have any more questions!
      The rules of the game are simple: 20 characters, 5 bundles and a large assortment of stretch goals ready to break into your bundle like a commando behind enemy lines. You will be able to support this project and contribute to the success of this range in three ways: you can select the miniatures you like individually, pounce on the convenient bundles for some bulk savings or, if you have an impassioned heart but only a few doubloons in your pocket, we would greatly appreciate if you could share this project far and wide, to wherever you think people might be interested.
      If you are only interested in some specific miniatures from the range, take a look at the table below, crack out a sheet of paper, a pencil and some rounded-tip scissors. Note down the miniatures that interest you and add up their individual prices. Their total will be the amount that you will need to insert as your pledge amount. After the campaign is completed, we will send out a pledge manager in which you will be able to sort out the details of which miniatures you want. 
        We have 5 bundles available: Bluecoat Bundle, Redcoat Bundle, Arcane Bundle, Mighty Mega Box and Friendly Mega Box! If you are interested in buying a bundle, simply select the appropriate pledge and enjoy the anticipation of that little box of goodies being dropped on your doorstep (if you still have those scissors ready, you could cut out some nice origami to pass the time!).
       "What if I want to buy more bundles? Or add more miniatures to my bundle?"
      Easier than shooting an Elf in a barrel (don't feel bad, he deserves it). Just select the reward you are interested in, then modify your pledge by adding the value of the miniatures or any other bundles you want to add; voila!
